    my sister is in gcse and struggling with maths and I got an A in maths when i did it at gcse. on her report from her maths teacher it said she needs to practice certain topics and most of them i am fairly comfortable with. A relative suggested that i tutor her and my parents pay me for it and i had never thought of that before. I need a bit of extra cash so i was wondering if it is a good idea. The only thing is i hate asking my parents for money.

    No harm in trying. You could possibly suggest to your parents hiring a tutor for your sister, but also reminding them that it'll cost them a lot so instead they could pay you a little amount. I get nervous about asking my parents for money sometimes (even though I have a job) but unless you keep asking them all the time, I'm pretty sure they won't mind giving you an allowance every now and then.

    I sort of tutor my younger brother, he's starting year 9 this year though. So I don't get any money for helping him haha

    My friend tutored her brother for maths and he ended up doing well. my sister is dyslexic and is predicted an E for maths and my parents really want her to get a C understandably. I won't be able to tutor her after the summer cause i'm going to uni, but i'm not doing much now. Yeah I'll try, i don't mind not being paid much.
    I also have experience in helping people with studying cause i helped someone voluntarily over email with geography for gcse.

    Oh wow. I help out my younger siblings all the time, but I never thought of ever getting paid for it! :lol:

    Having said that, my parents would never pay me just to help family and in all fairness I agree with them.

    I was going to suggest Skype. But I imagine you'd be far too busy.

    Yeah definitely give her all the help you can give her. My brother also has learning difficulties too, so I'd hope that he could get the best grades possible when he does his gcse. The less concerned you are about how much money you get the more willing your parents will be. So good luck
